One of the cornerstones of our dental practice is service to the community. We became dentists not just because we love the science of keeping teeth healthy and the artistry involved in creating a beautiful smile, but because dentistry allows us to use our talents and interests to serve others. This is one of the reasons our team at Bellissimi Dental volunteers with Medworks.

Find an Upcoming Free Clinic
If you are uninsured or underinsured and you’re unable to afford dental or medical care, you can find upcoming free clinics on the Medworks website. There are in-person free clinics and also telehealth clinics that allow patients to consult with healthcare professionals over the computer or phone. All services are free, but appointments are necessary to reserve a spot.
Give to Medworks
While healthcare providers throughout the Greater Cleveland area generously donate their services to Medworks, monetary donations are also needed for equipment and supplies. If you have the means, visit the Medworks website to donate to their Annual Fund.
You can also volunteer with Medworks, even if you’re not a healthcare professional. Medworks needs interpreters, social workers, guides, and volunteers to set up and take down equipment during clinics.
